August 2020 via Airbnb for Chesnel - 5 stars:

“We had a great week at the chateau. The welcome was exceptional. Nicky and Steve's hospitality and kindness are beyond reproach. The pool is very clean. The leisure facilities (ping-pong table, rackets, balls, etc.), the layout of the house, the kitchen, the bedrooms ... everything was beyond our expectations. We highly recommend the stay at Château de Meux. Ours is unforgettable. Yolande"
